Ueberschall has announced the release of Caribbean Flavors, which it describes as a versatile and colorful production tool with a pristine sound which is focused on 32 live-recorded Construction Kits from the Caribbean. This production offers many styles of the modern and traditional Latin music culture such as: Bachata, Buleria, Merengue, Salsa, Porro, Champeta, Cumbia, Montuno, Guaguanco, Guajira and Merengue.
All material provides the live-emphasized essence to aid in production realism, artistry and identity. Sessions were recorded with world-class musicians from Puerto Rico, Columbia, Cuba, Venezuela and Germany. Arrangement and ideas come from the famous musician, percussionist and Grammy Award winner Nené Vásquez; mixed and produced by Danya Vodovoz, known for his productions for Raul Paz, Mousse T. and 4Hero.
The content is of use in any music genre and can be easily integrated into any production where some Latin flavor is desired. Give your production more color and inspiration with powerful and hypnotic percussion grooves, real Latin Horns and Brass solos, authentic Montuno Piano grooves, Très, Flamenco or Latin Guitars and many other authentic Instruments and Vocal parts used in Latin music.
This release contains nearly 2 gigs of tightly played and fully arranged Latin grooves and breaks, divided into single track loops, solos and single sounds. Every construction kit can be easily remixed, rearranged, or merged for maximum flexibility with the included Elastik Player virtual instrument.
